    I'm still following Smallville Season 11, but on weeks where there isn't any Justice League or Earth 2 to go with it, I've been getting issues of the Booster Gold series that ran from 2007 to 2011. I'm a big fan of how it turns things around and has his publicity-seeking persona be more or less a secret identity to keep people from taking him seriously while he's actually fighting time-travelling supervillains.

    Just read the Batman: Hush TPB. I knew about Tommy, but it was still a great storyline and the art was tremendous.

    This was the first time I've actually bought Riddler as someone who knew what he was doing. Most of the time he just seems like a leftover from the Adam West era.

    The artwork in Hush was so damn good. I have first editions of that whole run that are sealed away forever because of Lee's artwork. I don't know if the Jason Todd "cameo" was a deliberate set up to bring the character back (as opposed to simply being used by a later writer to bring the character back) but taken as it was presented in that story alone as a deliberate stab at what Bruce considers his biggest failure was a nice touch.

    Speaking of the Riddler, I thought the Arkham City game did a pretty good job of making him not just a silly psycho but an actual threat. I don't think Jim Carrey's portrayal in the 90's helped moved the character forward any from the Adam West era now that you mention it.
    SQUIBBIDY SQUABS!

    I'm LilTooClinical, why are you still reading? Well since you're here...

    I write videogame blogs and personal ones. Please read them, won't you?

    Just read volumes 1-3 of Irredeemable, quite interesting and thought provoking.. And the 15 page preview of Waid's Unknown reeeeeaaaalllly makes me want to check it out.

    Read volume one of Images' Revival, liked it, want more.

    Starting on JMS's Midnight Nation, looks quite promising.

    My Alias TPB is in the mail.

    I've been following two:

    1- Honor Harrington, "Tales of Honor: On Basilisk Station" (Top Cow)

    2- Serenity: Leaves on the Wind (Dark Horse)

    I enjoyed Serenity: Leaves on the Wind quite a bit. It really made me hope for an ongoing Serenity/Firefly comic. I wish they would do something similar to the Buffy Seasons or X-Files Season 10 stuff.
